Oliver Osborne
European Paintings
Texts by Terry R. Myers and Nicholas Hatful

Oliver Osborne is not the first painter to make pretty choice paintings that are about choice, or, better yet, about doing something about choice itself: something critical yet open, timely yet mindful of history. The categories in which his paintings could be situated remain well-placed themselves not because they have been kept in their place as dogma but rather because many artists have worked hard to resist those aspects of choice that have too often and too easily become limiting, if not exclusionary and reactionary. Abstract, representational, high, low, painting, picture, even colour and line are less likely than maybe ever to fit into any construct of either/or. Not that long ago any hint of such a resistance to definition was usually taken as evidence of a lack of commitment or conviction, a verdict rendered more often than not on the basis of modernist doctrine.

Now, of course, new painters are emerging after postmodernism has moved from theory to doctrine itself, and, to my eyes (and ears), it’s clear that another paradigm is emerging, one that pushes against not only the either/or but also any continuation of the ‘death of painting’ narrative. It seems to me that that story now seems to many of these emerging painters as having been exhausted by those of us who lived through a parent-child relationship with both modernism and postmodernism that was (and may still be) ambivalent. There have been, fortunately, some agile and reliable ‘runaways’ such as Laura Owens, who, as demonstrated in a recent interview, is very much on point about what the death of painting wasn’t able to extinguish: ‘painting does things , and why wouldn’t you use all the things it does?’

This is the attitude adjustment that emerging painters such as Oliver Osborne have taken on and then intensified to up their game. Well versed in crucial aspects of image culture (its production and analysis), and with an anything-but-lacking desire for the material conditions of making and, yes, the dexterity of both hand and brain, Osborne has already established in his work that the long-standing ways and means of painting (long, long before modernism) are not all that played out after all.

Agnes Denes
Work 1969 – 2013

The reference monograph on the work of artist Agnes Denes, this profusely illustrated book aslo gathers an extensive selection of the artist’s texts and manifestos. Born in 1938 in Budapest, Denes lived in Stockholm from the age of nine, before spending her teenage years, from 1954 on, in New York, where she still lives and works today. Since the late 1960s, Agnes Denes has combined a conceptual approach to drawing and printmaking with interventions in the natural and urban environment, which were altogether pioneering in terms of her ecological origins and scope. “Although I deal with difficult concepts, my work remains visual. The process of ‘visualization’ is double important since aspects of the work explore invisible systems, underlying structures, and patterns inherent in our existence,” Denes said in 1978. This catalogue provides incontrovertible evidence to the statement.

Rising
Texts by Maurizio Cattelan, Johanna Fateman, and Thomas Micchelli

This publication is the first major catalogue of the work of feminist artist Judith Bernstein, and was created in conjunction with the artist’s retrospective at Kunsthall Stavanger, Norway in 2016. A former Guerilla Girl and founding member of A.I.R Gallery, New York, Bernstein has worked consistently for over five decades despite censorship and periods of art world neglect. Titled Judith Bernstein Rising, the catalogue serves as the first publication to contextualize Bernstein’s vast oeuvre within the history of art, feminism, and the American socio-political climate of the late-20th century. The catalogue presents a variety of archival images tracing the artist’s fifty-year career from the 1960s through the present day, as well as installation images from the exhibition at Kunsthall Stavanger, and commissioned texts from artist and writer Thomas Micchelli, and Le Tigre band member and writer Johanna Fateman, as well as an interview by artist Maurizio Catalan.

Short Stories
By Anja Niemi

In her latest series, ‘Short Stories’, Anja Niemi created seven short stories containing fictional characters, objects, landscapes and interiors – all in some way connected to each other. Each story starts off in the same way, all inspired by pre-owned objects. Rhinestone lashes, a police booking sheet with fingerprints, a Russian gun holster and six 1940s dolls with loose limbs, all led to a character and a chapter in her collection of tragicomic tales. As with previous series, Anja continues her work in the same way as before, photographing, staging and acting out the characters on her own.

‘Short Stories’ will be premiered at Photo London and Offprint and is published to coincide with her exhibition at The Little Black Gallery which runs from May 26, 2016 to June 16, 2016. The book is an edition of 100 and is available exclusively from The Little Black Gallery, London. Supported by the Norwegian Embassy.

Francesco Vezzoli
Museo Museion
Letizia Ragaglia, ed.
Essays by Dieter Roelstraete, Anna Coliva, and Letizia Ragaglia. With an conversation between Cristiana Perrella and Francesco Vezzoli, and a contribution by Cerith Wyn Evans.

Accompanying the projects grouped under the same title at Museion in Bolzano, Museo Museion is designed like a fictitious old guide to a museum of peculiar, striking juxtapositions: between what is ancient and what is newly added, and between what is real and what is illusionary. Here, for the first time, Vezzoli plays both artist and curator. In his sculptural works, placed on the top floor along a long podium like a silent, mocking regiment—and scattered through the book as plates, glued to the pages—the artist “embraces the risk of tampering with historic artworks” by adding new features to mutilated originals. The resulting paradoxes look outlandish, but are indeed only the latest example of what has long been a defining aspect of Western art and culture: how it deals with antiquities. Meanwhile, on the floors below, Vezzoli-as-curator selected a significant sample of the museum’s collection, grouped it according to theme and genre, and reframed it, both literally and conceptually: works by Lucio Fontana, Nan Goldin, Carla Accardi, and others are bordered by trompe l’œil reproductions of the frames from key paintings by Bronzino, Raphael, Ingres, etc.—to intriguing effect. All of these pairings are illustrated and annotated in the book.
